The Via Lasciva

This is a strange mark which takes the form also somewhat

of a semi-circle, but in this case it connects the Mount of the Moon with

that of Venus, or it may simply run off the hand from the lower part of

the Mount of Luna into the wrist.

The first-mentioned formation indicates unbridled sensuality and passion,

and where it cuts through the Line of Life it indicates death, but one

usually brought about in connection with the licentiousness that it


This Line running from the Mount of the Moon into the wrist denotes the

most sensual dreams, desires, and imaginings, but, unlike the other

class, it is usually only dangerous to the person on whose hand it is


In both cases there is generally a tendency towards the taking of drugs

such as opium, morphine, especially when the hand is noted to be soft,

full, and flabby. With a firm hard palm the subject usually indulges in

excessive drinking fits, and when under drink seems to have no control


If the Line of Head is found weak-looking, full of islands and descending

downwards on the Mount of the Moon, insanity or the worst form of

degeneracy will sooner or later destroy the whole character and career.
